Looped Flower

Haven't used My Hero Arts Looped Flower stamp in a while. I heat embossed the stamp with black embossing powder and then colored it with my copics. 

The Flower and Leaf (Penny Black-Petal Party) are heat embossed with white embossing powder. The flower was embossed on vellum.

Here is the Looped Flower Stamp:

*Hero Arts Cling Stamp LOOPED FLOWER PATTERN cg504 Rubber Unmounted 2013

I got my inspiration from Lin.  

*Wplus9 QUILT PRINTS Clear Stamps CL-WP9QP

Have a glorious day!

Blessings to you  ~

Here is a set of cards that I made for several of my friends who have persevered through some difficult times in the past six months. Some of them have lost loved ones and others have been battling cancer. I know that when I was diagnosed with cancer it was so special to me when someone would take the time to call or send a card. My brother recently said "Our family teaches us how to love and God gives us friends to share that love."

Old Trucks

I don't know what there is about old trucks but they just seem to have a certain attraction to all the guys. My husband is one of them. He has driven more trucks than he has cars and his favorite old truck is a 1964 Ford. He has some sweet memories of that one. 

Simon Says Stamp challenge this week is Masculine/Father's Day and they are showcasing Tim Holtz products. 

Here is what I came up with:

I don't have many Tim Holtz stamps but I have used this particular set quite a few times.
Tim Holtz Stamp: The Journey (Truck stamped in Memento Bahama Blue and HA Wet Cement)
Sentiment: Simon Says Stamp: Flower Friend
Rounded Diamonds Die: Avery Elle (Glossy Accents added to them)
Always got have a little bling - even on a guy card!

Blessings to you today!

I imagine that many of you have someone in your life that is your hero - in our younger days that person may have been someone who was strong and adventurous - in our eyes they were like Superman - "Faster than a speeding bullet! More powerful than a locomotive! Able to leap tall buildings in a single bound!" However, now I see a heroes greatness is not only the ability to help others escape desperate situations but their greatness starts within in their heart. 

I am so thankful that God blessed me with two heroes - my dad and my husband. I don't think I ever tell them enough how blessed I am that they are a part of my life.

Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week is Masculine/Father's Day. Check it out!

Here is my Father's Day card for my dad. He will celebrate his 91st birthday this July.

Love this new Penny Black Stamp & Sentiment: 40-224 Hot rod!
